Photography is, first of all,
a way of seeing.
It is not seeing itself.
— Susan Sontag
 
 

Isa and Natascha are nicknamed belle & sass referring to their middle names Isabelle and Saskia, which conveniently also express a certain attitude to life they both share: a search for beauty with a good portion of sassiness. When approaching a new adventure, these are precisely their tools. Because photography is a way of seeing. And this is their lens.
